Malcolm X's Birthday

I have to say that I have a little more affinity for Malcolm X than I do for Martin Luther King Jr. Having to choose, I would have liked that Malcolm X, more than Martin Luther King Jr., more than JFK, more than Robert Kennedy, had been the man that was not assassinated.

Here's some clips of Malcolm X. But first let's start with Billie Holiday's Strange Fruit

Whenever I look at Malcolm X and think of the bull**** that existed I'm surprised, astonished really, at the lack of violence.

For all you defenders of Free Markets and Free Minds listen to this speach by Malcolm X. What a defense of limited government and an excoriation of the nanny state.

And you think Republican's are Stupid?

Imagine the ridicule if Bush or Palin had said this. This is not Sanchez' only ridiculous statment in the last few months. Look at the video below: "What is 9 meters in English?"

How about Rick Sanchez' professional skill, reading from a teleprompter? He reads "ad lib" and says: "Upnext, ad lib, a tease."

Again, imagine the 24x7 ridicule if Sarah Palin or George Bush had said anything so stupid.

Are Americans becoming more involved politically?

I'm still wondering: are Americans becoming more involved politically? And are these Americans truly rooted in the arguments of limited government as espoused by our Founding Fathers in the Declaration of Independence and Constitution?

And, how do we determine this?
